What Are the Most Common Injuries in Basketball?

November 5th, 2013

Kobe Bryant LAIt’s a game that’s competed by 7’3″ giants, so naturally there are going to be more than a few injuries. Basketball might be officially classed as non-contact, but let’s not kid ourselves – it’s a fierce game where players regularly require treatment. The rest of this guest post will now look at several of the most common injuries in the game, after deciphering some of the official NBA statistics.

Ankle Injuries

The stats suggested that the ankle was the area which was most commonly injured, with almost 15% of injuries throughout the history of the NBA being dedicated to this region of the body. If we’re going to get even more specific, the worst type of injury was the ankle sprain.

While no data was released about just how these injuries occurred, it’s not difficult to see why. Even with a lot of players standing over 7′ tall, many are still vying for that slam dunk and will regularly land awkwardly to aggravate the ankle. While the sprain is the most common problem in this regard, it’s not been unheard of for more serious injuries such as ligament damage to be caused on those falls which promote a hefty impact with the floor.

As you can see, the amount of instances where an ankle injury occurs is high to say the least. It therefore shouldn’t be a surprise to read that many of the game’s top athletes rely on ankle supports and other stability aids from stores such as to minimise the risks.

Knee Injuries

With almost 12% of total injuries being around the knee, it certainly wasn’t too far behind the ankle. Again, we’re going to jump into specifics and patellofemoral inflammation was one of the most serious issues in this category – with this causing players to miss more games than any other fitness condition. Again, jumping was the big problem, with the same, repetitive jumps generally being the cause of this.
